Our biggest and muddiest Paragon Mudathon to date, raising £16,000 for LandAid and Born Too Soon with 615 property industry participants.
A total of £16,000 has been raised by the Paragon Mudathon for LandAid and Born Too Soon, after 615 property industry professionals took on the extreme mud challenge this September.
The annual event takes place at the UK’s toughest 5K obstacle course at Henfold Lakes in Dorking with participants running, climbing, sliding and crawling through more than 100 mud and water obstacles.
Ben Polhill from Everyone Active, completed the course in the fastest time of 52 minutes, Nicole Buckland was the fastest individual woman at one hour 6 minutes and Abacus Consulting took the crown for the fastest team around the course.
This was the fifth annual event organised by independent building and project consultancy Paragon with the aim to bring industry leaders together to raise vital funds for well-deserving causes.
Donations from the event will be split between Born Too Soon, a small charity supporting the Neonatal Unit for premature and sick babies at Kingston Hospital, and LandAid, the property industry’s charity aiming to end youth homelessness. Paragon’s Mudathon has raised £61,000 for charity since it was founded five years ago.
Commenting on the Mudathon’s fundraising success, Paragon joint managing director, Rob Perry, said: “We are incredibly proud to witness the continuing success of The Paragon Mudathon, now in its 5th year, with an amazing turnout totalling over 600 participants. Individuals and teams alike from across the Property industry had great fun working together to battle their way through the punishing 100 obstacle strong, mud-covered 5k challenge to raise lifechanging funds for charities LandAid and Born Too Soon.
Though the weather wasn’t completely on our side this year, the atmosphere certainly wasn’t dampened with well-deserved celebrations continuing in to the evening. A big THANK YOU to everyone who came out to participate and support, in making it such a wonderful day. A huge shout out to all the Sponsors as well who help to make the day possible and ensure we maximise the funds raised for the charities.
We look forward to welcoming you all with muddy arms next year!!!"
